If you love our canine friends and dream of living in the very best of the great outdoors, then you’ll love it here at Muktuk.

Volunteers live in a rustic and cozy Cabin which offer you clean comfort and an ‘off-the-grid’ lifestyle. That means no electricity or running water at your cabin.

Showers, linens, and work clothing are provided in the Main Lodge. Volunteers are giving weekly food allowance and will go grocery shopping once a week. Volunteers make their own meals in their cabin.

Crew 1 compressedDepending on what duties you are assigned, your work day starts at 7 a.m. or 8 a.m. and normally ends at 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. However, crew are also expected to help with anything that comes up in the evenings.  There may be opportunities for breaks during the day.

Tasks vary depending on what needs doing, the season, how many crew members are here, and how many visitors are expected that day.

Muktuk Crew July 2012 compressed There are plenty of things to do in and around Whitehorse such as shopping, hiking, mountain biking, water sports, cross-country skiing or downhill skiing and snowboarding.  You may also be able to participate in workshops or classes so it is wise to plan ahead once you know your days off.  The Takhini Hot Springs are close by, and so is the Yukon Wildlife Preserve where you can see buffalo, musk ox, caribou and mountain goats, to name a few.

You may catch rides on the shuttle to town on scheduled times, but if you would like to explore further having a car may be a good idea!

Does this sound interesting?

Then apply for an opportunity at Muktuk Adventures. Just email us a letter and a PDF of your resume to info@muktuk.com.  Please indicate  what dates you are available (as specific as possible or indicate if dates are flexible).  Applicants traveling to Canada from other countries looking to volunteer must have a Work Visa. We hire in advance of each season, so if you’re looking for summer positions, apply in the winter. If you would rather work in the winter season, apply in summer.
